Synthetic lines are safer, lighter, faster, and can have the same tensile strength as wire rope. But old, worn deck equipment such as roller fairleads can put your brand new lines at risk.
Fluoron’s Maritime Application Rope Savers (M.A.R.S.™) provide the perfect solution!
A M.A.R.S.™ cover can be installed over your existing deck equipment in just minutes! Fluoron offers three installation options:
• Ship us your damaged deck equipment, and we’ll ship it back complete with a M.A.R.S.™ cover
• Send us your dimensions, and we’ll send you a custom-fit M.A.R.S.™ cover with installation instructions
• We’ll send our highly skilled Fluoron technicians to your facility for a guaranteed installation
What is M.A.R.S.™?
M.A.R.S.™ is constructed of the toughest of all plastics known! With molecular weight of 3-6 million (compared to pipe grade high-density polyethylene with a molecular weight of 60,000) it demonstrates extreme wear resistance, even better than steel (see Sand Slurry Test Results below). Fluoron, Inc. has a patent on heat shrinkable covers and is now utilizing their expertise to devlop solutions for marine corrosion and rope chafing.
